about the contract from america on this program. in fact, we unveiled them with ryan hecker a week ago. they are talking about constitutional limits to government, constitutional restraints on spending, on taxing. indeed on repealing obamacare. are these the principles guiding your decisions, your journeys, your travels and your endorsements? >> they're very consistent with the criteria we're using. we're looking for people not going to come to the senate to take on the bacon. that's what's gotten us trillions of dollars in debt. folks who swear off earmarks who want to repeal obamacare, who believe in limited federal government, keeping their oath of office. these are not right wing ideas. they are right in the middle of where most americans are. so i think that's why candidates like marco rubeo and marlin stutsman will do well. america has wakened up. it's not about political philosophy. it's about common sense. don't spend more than we are bringing in. stop adding to the debt. this appeals to democrats, republicans and independents. that's why i think we'll have a great election as
on in america, so it isn't really a choice for them, this culture. to me, the culture has to start from the top and i'm going to give you an example, and i'll be short, mr. chairman, as i always am. i was governor for eight years in west virginia and we were having unacceptably high death rates in hour mines. i decided that as chief executive, that is, c.e.o., that i would go to each of the mines where the mine inspectors would gather, after there had been a death. that had never happened before. there i was sitting, as there were trying to explain to each other what happened and who should have done what. things happened. everything was different, because the culture change took place at the top. now i'm not saying that i changed the world, but it did have an effect and that's why in a secret world it end of 35 miles of hard driving, and then a thousand to 2,000 feet underground, when only a few -- or only a few people from that state or from any state have ever been, it has to come from the top. it has to come from the top. >> mr. chairman, related to that, i have been down in an underground
of credulous media coverage today of the so-called contract from america, which was unveiled by -- who was this thing unveiled by again? oh, the american people. god, i totally don't remember signing that. but look, that's my signature and yours too. see, it's in cursive so it must be official. the contract from america is being seen as a second generation version of newt gingrich's contract with america, which was released amid the 1994 republican takeover of congress. see, only this one, this one, though, is signed by the american people. but if you look above the american people's signature, there are some other names that are not in cursive. looks like the contract from america was brought to you not just by the american people, but by some organizations as well, like, say, freedomworks. so when they say, signed by the american people, they actually mean signed by legendary corporate lobbyist dick armey's group that doesn't disclose its funders. also, for example, the heartland institute. so when they say by the american people, they also mean by a conservative think tank that's re

the people, there is liberty. you know what is coming. let's go! hello, america. today's show is about the loss of freedom. the loss of every person to make intelligent choices without guidance or interference or compulsion from the government. when the great country was founded, those who created the government understood that there are areas of personal choices that are none of the government's business. they fought a revolution. they wrote a constitution. they guaranteed that the government they gave us would be far different than the one they fought against. we are an independent country today in large measure because the founding fathers had had enough of the british king and parliament telling them how to live. forcing them to sell goods where they didn't want to sell. taxing almost all their behavior. and disregarding their natural rights to speak, to engage in commercial activities of hair own choosing and to -- of their own choosing and be left alone. does it sound familiar? that was the complaint 230 years ago. it's happening all over again. except now, it's their own governm
